A late Swallow over the Entrance Bushes was the highlight although the Bonaparte's Gull again but in an appearance feeding in the Bight late morning. Elsewhere 140 Common Scoter, two Red-throated and a Great Northern Diver were offshore and counts from the estuary included 282 Wigeon, 190 Brent Geese, 81 Shelduck and 42 Teal. The duck numbers are much reduced since the marshes at the north end of the estuary flooded.
